Spicer 5-785x or the newer version of that which is the 5-1310x. Both of those are sealed which is what I prefer as well and both are superb u-joints.

Yes, all TJ driveshaft u-joints are the same with the exception of the Rubicon which I can't even always manage to keep straight.

Quadratec isn't astute enough to carry the cool u-joints. Simply go to Google's shopping page at Google Product Search and type in Spicer and either of those part numbers to find them. You can even sort the results based on price.
